Q: I recently acquired a Satsuma Moriage vase which was converted into a lamp. I don't know much about it — someone put it out for free when clearing out a house. There are three people depicted on the vase — two nearly identical-looking bald, old men and one who could be a female (or a younger male with long hair) riding a dragon in the sea. Can anyone tell me about who might be depicted on the vase?
